Wordpress (change from easy install to advanced)


#1

I am new to dreamhost as well as setting up blogs.

Could someone tell me how to change Wordpress from easy install to the advanced install? I need to add semiologic to my wordpress theme. My domain is hosted at Dream Host but I need to add the plugin and don’t know how to change from easy to advanced. I wish I were more polished on these matters but at first it seems a little complicated.

Thank you.

Can’t you unistall and re-install in advanced mode?

It won’t convert, but if you delete an Easy install, it will dump the database into your Manage MySQL section. After that, you can install WordPress and modify the wp-config.php file to point to the dumped database.

Howdy Scott,

Thank you for your information. Unfortunately I am not familiar with the lingo and have no idea how to do what you just told me to do.

Also when I go to One Click Installs I don’t find Advanced Mode.
All I see is the two choices below and the last choice says I don’t have an active domain.

My domain (healthelujah.com) is hosted with Dream Host so I just presumed it was active.


Choice 1:
Install new website software - Easy mode

Choice 2:
Install new website software:
You currently have no active domains with us. You’ll need to add one before installing any software!

Sorry to bug you again. Thanks for any additional help you can afford me.
